Question about LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer
I bought a house with the LG 3243 (about 4 years old) already installed, no owner's manual. This morning, after starting a small cotton load on "Auto", I notice the digital display said "le" and the clothes inside were still wet.
I tried to start a "dry" cycle, but it stopped shortly after starting, again giving the "le" message.
I can't see where I can access the hose to try to clear a clog.
LE error code means the motor sensor has failed. The motor sensor is located in the back of unit inside the motor. You will need to order a replacement motor sensor from LG. You will need a 17 mm and 10 mm socket tools to do this job.

This web site has a copy of manual. I found it by searching in Google for: lg wd-3243rhd manual
The manual gives LE as meaning there is a motor overload, which may well mean a faulty sensor.
Note that the manual warns against putting stuff of the top of the machine because this can cause overheating.
Note also that CoolTech sounds experienced. I just read manuals.

You don't have to get a complete motor. The only thing that is gone most likely is the Hall sensor. Runs about $20. You will have to take off the Rotor and stator and it clips onto the stator. Be careful when putting the rotor back on as the magnets pull it back in and if your not careful you will pinch your fingers.
